Take a look at your desk. Whether it’s your office cube where you spend 8 hours a day or your tiny home office where you blog, chances are it could use a few updates. My work desk could definitely use some more color and personal items- I’m thinking of printing out a few photos to hang to solve this problem. Here are a few easy decor and furniture updates you can make to your office space- all courtesy of Cult Furniture, a line of designer furniture at affordable prices.
- A comfy chair. I’ve worked in offices before where my chair was too big for my body (my feet wouldn’t even touch the ground) or just plain uncomfortable. Investing in a comfortable and ergonomic chair is key. This Eames Turquoise Ribbed Style Office Chair is not only pretty, but it also has a one-touch gas lift height adjustment to fit to your body and desk.
- Adequate lighting. Sometimes I’ll make a graphic for my blog, only to see that the colors are way off later on. You need proper lighting when designing graphics or editing photos. Plus, your eyes will be less strained if the lighting is adequate. This Jielde Style Chrome Loft Desk Lamp comes in a variety of colors and can be adjusted for any size desk.
- Inspirational art. Ok- so maybe it doesn’t have to be inspirational per se, but hanging paintings, photos or even a bulletin board full of magazine clippings is great for creativity. Isamu Noguchi’s High Tea art evokes a clean, feminine office- even if yours is shared with your manly boyfriend.
- Something cute. I like stocking up on colorful or fun-shaped Post-It notes and pens. Other people tend to gravitate toward wall decor. This George Nelson Style White Asterisk Clock would look great against a colored wall.
